  1. Nebuchadnezzar scored this whisky 92 points Expert Senior

    The most powerful Octomore, the best of all that I had a chance to try.
    64% here are perceived quite easily.

    Like all young Octomores, I can only award 83 P here.

    Nose: very light touch of wet leather. Citrus and a smell of polished aluminum and wet grass. Slight adhesive note. Ehr straight 80P
    Taste: Slightly sweet with a dominant bitter salt note. Meaty and the 64% alcohol is quite drinkable. Again, citrus and grass and heather are clearly present. Great peat. 86P
    Finish: Short and painless as it came 83P

  6. Malthead19 scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    - a phenomenal octomore
    - picked me up in terms of taste, very good combination of sweetness, strength, volume and smoke,
    - You can hardly feel the very strong%, it is stronger and has a lot of volume, but the over 60% don't bother you at all
    - Special feature: the very creamy body
    • Nose
      buttery, sweet, toffee, fudge, but also fruity => directional pickled fruit (rum pot), you don't notice the 64%, yes it smells a little stronger but not pungent or very strong
    • Taste
      direct tingling on the lips but not at all burning or very alcoholic as expected, sweet, toffee, fudge, vanilla, very creamy, strong smoke development in the mouth, the smoke is very pleasantly integrated into the sweetness, from the 258ppm you can hardly feel it a pleasantly mild smoke character; with water: character remains the same but of course a little more pleasant to drink
    • Finish
      medium-long sweet, soft finish, long smoky aftertaste
